This unit introduces students to international financial economics using a mixture of modern economic theory and empirical analysis. The inter-temporal model of the current account is examined to enable the analysis of the effects of economic policies on international trade and global financial markets. Theory and evidence for international asset positions will also be examined. Models of exchange rate and interest rate determination will be introduced and their empirical performance will be assessed. Topics covered will include sovereign debt, currency crises and the home bias portfolio puzzle.
